    If i had the chance, I'd say the old Star jets.

    They are higher than the current Astro Jets.

    What do you mean they were higher? They are still up on top of the TTA (People Mover) and you still have to use the gantry to get to them.

    If we could limit this to people that have experienced both, I'd bet the old would throttle the new in this case....

    I remember the old Star Jets well, and I preferred them over the Disneyland Rocket Jets. I really liked the look of the old Star Jets, but I really like the look of the new Astro Orbiter too, so I had to choose "like them both, can't decide".

    Pssst... Hey Nick..

    I don't think Barf noticed this was in the "WDW" area. The DLR orbiter is distressing low to the ground.

    I've only experienced the Astro Orbiter. But I think both work well for their surroundings. The Astro Jets would look odd at the end of the Avenue of Planets, as the Astro Orbiter would look odd in the original Tomorrowland.

    The Astro Jets ceased to be in 1966. You're thinking of the Astro Orbitor, and the Star Jets never existed at Disneyland. The slight differences in the names can actually tell you when and where the attraction existed.

    Astro = Stars

    Orbiter = That which orbits

    The Disneyland attraction is Astro Orbitor. That is what I was commenting on.
